Theft, Burglary, & Robbery: Defense Attorneys Explain the Differences, Warner Robins, Georgia

If you are facing criminal law charges, having a comprehensive understanding of what you’re up against is crucial. This is especially true when it comes theft, burglary, and robbery, which are commonly confused but actually are quite different charges. Here, the defense attorneys at The Walker Firm in Warner Robins, GA, offer the information you need to approach your case with the greatest chances of success.

Defense Attorneys Break Down Theft, Burglary, & Robbery

Theft

defense attorneyTheft entails the removal of a tangible item owned by someone else without gaining that person’s consent. Theft by nature is permanent (i.e., you don’t intend to return the item to its rightful owner) and can sometimes be referred to as larceny. While it has similarities to burglary and robbery, theft is considered the least complex of these types of crimes.

Burglary

Entering into a structure with the intention of committing theft is considered burglary. Burglary can occur in a variety of locations, including residential homes and commercial spaces. While force is typically involved in burglary, even something as minimal as opening the door to be a building can be construed as force.

Robbery

defense attorneyRobbery is considered a very serious offense, as it involves violence or the threat of violence. However, no physical harm needs to occur for a robbery charge to be levied. Simply threatening someone with violence to take their belongings is enough to incur this charge.
